My Philosophy of Student Discipline My philosophy of student discipline begins with the ideology that students learn what they live. Through the introduction and continuous exposure to a positive school environment, students will develop the social, emotional, and physical skills needed to become promising contributors to society. Within these skills, the term respect resonates as an underlying aspect of a positive atmosphere. Respect is related to student discipline by integration in quantitative and qualitative manners. The following paragraphs will give insight into respect within both fashions and show how they are complementary.
This approach has a high level of firm but positive control in the classroom by the teacher. Assertive Discipline requires the teacher to provide and teach the rules and directions that plainly spell out the limits of acceptable and unacceptable student behavior. Another part of this approach in behavior/classroom management is that when needed the teacher is to ask for assistance from the parents
Introduction Classroom management defines the learning environment. A classroom management plan sets the tone for teachers, students, parents, the physical environment, and the multitude of relationships connecting these elements. For pre-school settings, the most critical aspect of classroom management is the arrangement of the physical environment. “The difference between chaos and an orderly atmosphere that facilitates learning depends in great part on how the teacher prepares the environment” (Crosser, 1992, p.23). Because a child-centered curriculum depends heavily on a child’s interaction with the classroom and its materials, taking careful consideration of all furniture, learning centers, and learning materials, creates the foundation for a successful classroom management plan.
t identifies two groups that are similar and comparisons are made- it seeks to discover cause and effect, avoids artificiality, can be used to study past events, no ethical problems . If studying labelling in schools which is a social process of teachers attaching positive or negative labels to students and students also doing this to teachers, this is best understood in the context of social interaction in the classroom. This would eliminate lab experimentation and would be favoured by interactionists using a field experiment approach. Main ideas concepts Some researchers have used laboratory experiments-Harvey and Stains, they looked at whether teachers had preconceived ideas about pupils of different social classes. The study indicated labelling goes on and that the labels are used to pre-judge pupils potential.
According to Morrish (Charles, 2011) giving students a choice in how to behave fails because “if they don’t mind the consequences, they choose to behave discourteously and irresponsible.” (p. 84) Morrish defines discipline in this way, “Discipline is about developing and creating appropriate behaviors, not just managing the ones which are already there,” (2001 p. 10). Real Discipline three phases; (1) train students for compliance (2) directly teach students how to behave in a classroom and practice the skills needed for success, and (3) manage student choice, but only after they have demonstrated mastery of the required responsibilities in a classroom. This program is more rigid and controlling of students, but it appears easy to implement and certainly the effects can be easily measured. The teacher must directly teach students how they are to behave in a classroom setting and then practice it with them until mastery is achieved. There really is no punishment in this system,
How can parents reclaim their position as part of the school community? Group 2: Lack of competence on the part of a teacher has a negative impact on the way learners view their teacher and also often results in discipline problems among learners. Suggest ways in which a teacher can be regarded as a quality and effective teacher providing examples in your argument. Group 3: Teaching also goes hand-in- hand with the manner in which you conduct yourself as a teacher because you have to develop a certain atmosphere and quality when standing in front of your learners in a classroom. Discuss a situation/s in which you experienced your own school teacher displaying qualities of an effective teacher.
We use a quickscan, and VAK test which helps to determine the learner style, (Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic). From the results we can evaluate the correct level and course for the learner to be on and also if additional support is needed throughout the course. Support must be in place before during and after initial assessment. For me I have a LSA in the workshop with me to assist with the learners who may require it. Within the teaching role of my subject it is important I provide a safe learning environment for all students, ensuring that they all engage and participate actively in practical and theory lessons alike.
In my job role, I work closely with the class teacher and full time teaching assistant. Each member of the team know and understand their own role in school, they should also know and understand the roles of others in their team and how they fit together to support the pupils. Good communication skills amongst one another are essential to enable us to provide the highest quality of learning and support to the pupils in the classes where I volunteer. In our team, we offer support to one another and discuss the developments and achievements of the individual pupils. We share information and contribute ideas for future
The culture of a school starts from the administration and trickles down through to the educators and all other personnel that have been hired to better the intelligence of the students. It takes a village to raise a child and if the village does not believe in the child then the cycle of the way things are done will not be changed. As a building administrator you need to provide your staff with the opportunity to have a say in the way that things are done. You need to give them the opportunity to establish the culture. As an administrator it is your job to tie it all together and see that it is enforced daily so that your school culture is a positive one that affects the willingness of staff members, students, parents, and the community to produce a high quality end product - the education of the students that we serve.
Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults. Effective communication is important to contribute to a positive and professional relationship. The way you communicate should be clear, strong and by using appreciate vocabulary suitable to whom you are communicating with. Always modelling effective communication and a positive relationship. This in turn sets the particular way in which we expect the pupils to communicate within the school.
